    Lil Spills for October 2009

    Wednesday, October 14, 2009

    I have been in Raleigh with my son and family this week. These school vacations are killers. A lot going on this week. We are trying to design a Coyote app. Some really fun ideas are being passed around. I am having a hard time accessing the managers logs , but perhaps that is a good thing. I have 2 1/2 months to get some work started to reach a few personal goals. SHARKTANK! I need to be on that show
    I have received a couple of emails that ” The office” referenced Coyote Ugly. I love that. My proudest reference to one of my bars was when it was an answer on Jeopardy. So Far Coyote Ugly has been refrenced on Jeopardy, King of Queens, The Office, Family Guy, and I think a few others. That is so awesome!!!!

    Painful. Every bar sucked last night! Jackson is off this week so I am taking him to see his grandparents and cousins. He’s all about werewolves today. How do you kill a werewolf? Silver bullets?
    Can’t wait to put some new decor in Lauderdale.

    Memphis made a pink Coyote Ugly t shirt honoring Breast Cancer awareness month!!! Thanks Judith. I love my shirt!!

    Went to the Lauderdale bar on Wednesday night. So many new girls. Some very pretty girls. I am hoping to get an outside girl down there to give them a little more training. I want to spruce the place up a bit as well. I met the Coyote Ugly Men’s softball team. They are crushing everyone. I think their last game they won by over 20 points!!!! Hot Damn. OK now I have to get my fat ass outside and run a bit! I just found out about a show called The SharkTank. I need to be on this show!! Pronto

    Some funny stuff going on. A few months ago one of my attorneys was concerned that someone else put in an application for our trademark in Japan and this company according to our Japanese lawyers was called Agree Inc. After doing the research and not finding any information they realized that it was a matter of accent. What he was interpreting as Aug gree inc was actually a pronounced Japanese accent saying Ugly Inc. So this whole time there was no competitor to our trademark, it was Ugly Inc , my company. LOL
    Oh man Lee has not changed one bit. The other day he sent me a design for a new motorcycle glove that he loved. I didn’t love it but he asked me to show Trey the design and get his imput. I said ” Lee , Trey is an old time biker. He didn’t like the old design I don’t think he will be honest.” ” But Lil he loved the old design.” ” No Lee he was trying to be nice. But I will send it to him and urge him to be honest in either direction.” So I sent it to Trey and his first response was that as a harley rider the gloves were more designed for motorcross riders.” Lee only hears what he wants to hear. Today we are going back and forth on some projects that have been put on the back burner. Instead of just being honest and saying he dropped the ball , it has turned to me dropping the ball. ” Send me all he contact information I am more then willing to unburden you.” Nobody likes criticism but usually age turns it into motivation. That hasn’t seemed to happen yet.
    As I was reviewing my scores on the test I took yesterday I acknowledged that the mind of an employee may be different to the mind of a boss. I am probably freer to answer in a more assertive way. And who knows how well I would take criticism?

    I bought a book called ” Strengths Finder 2.0″. Very interesting concept. Instead of trying to change weaknesses you try to work with your strengths to accomplish goals . Not only your own strengths but also strengths of coworkers so you can make them and yourself more productive. After you purchase the book you are allowed to go online and take a test to access your 5 greatest strengths. So of course I had to take the test.
    The Clifton StrengthsFinder

    “As you may know, the Clifton StrengthsFinder measures the presence of talent in 34 categories called “themes.” These themes were determined by Gallup as those that most consistently predict outstanding performance. The greater the presence of a theme of talent within a person, the more likely that person is to spontaneously exhibit those talents in day-to-day behaviors.Focusing on naturally powerful talents helps people use them as the foundation of strengths and enjoy personal, academic, and career success through consistent, near-perfect performance.

    Below are my top five themes of talent, ranked in the order revealed by my responses to the Clifton StrengthsFinder.

    1. Ideation
    People who are especially talented in the Ideation theme are fascinated by ideas. They are able to find connections between seemingly disparate phenomena.

    2. Strategic
    People who are especially talented in the Strategic theme create alternative ways to proceed. Faced with any given scenario, they can quickly spot the relevant patterns and issues.

    3. Competition
    People who are especially talented in the Competition theme measure their progress against the performance of others. They strive to win first place and revel in contests.

    4. Command
    People who are especially talented in the Command theme have presence. They can take control of a situation and make decisions.

    5. Activator
    People who are especially talented in the Activator theme can make things happen by turning thoughts into action. They are often impatient.

    Hot damn!!! All the bars did well this weekend. I love that. DENVER ROCKS freaking great numbers!!! I have already decided that if there is another Katrina then I will move to Denver. Its monday and I have had such a positive day already. Very productive very productive!!! Heading to the Ft. Lauderdale bar on Wednesday! Let’s make some miracles happen. I am reading a book called Strength Finder 2.0 I love the idea of working off your strengths to improve your management skills versus trying to improve your weaknesses. It makes a lot of sense. I am all about self improvement today!!
